Year 11 Product Design and Technology
Year 11 Product Design and Technology have created wonderful pieces of furniture. The brief required them to design seating for pop up cafes referencing 20th Century Design Movements.
They designed their furniture during remote learning and created wonderful solutions in a very short period of time, once we were back. We are very proud of them. Congratulations!

Last week the SSC library celebrated Bookweek 2020. In this unusual year we decided to wait until all students were back on site at school so we could all participate in the fun and games.
Each Year 7 and 8 class were treated to a Kahoot bookquiz run by Michael and the students had a lot of fun competing for the top spot. A display of the Children’s Book Council of Australia winners and other competitions were also enjoyed. The Book of the Year for older readers was “This is how we change the ending” by Vikki Wakefield and for younger readers was “The Little Wave” by Pip Harry.
The winner of the Eve Pownall Award for Information Books was “Young Dark Emu” by Bruce Pascoe.
Year 10 Food Technology
Year 10 Food Technology were set a challenge to turn the humble sausage in bread into a fine dining experience.
All students were given a sausage, a piece of bread, some caramelised onions and had a selection of sauces. They were given the added incentive of having the best plates included in the parent bulletin.
Year 8 Earth Science
Year 8 students have been studying Earth Sciences and Geology this term. This has involved learning about earthquakes and earth forming processes, as well as investigations of the types of rocks and processes that form them, including volcanoes.
In recent weeks Students have been attending incursions to VSSEC in order to take a closer look at the formation of different types of rocks from different types of minerals and processes. This has involved taking rock samples, and using mineral examples and microscopes to identify the rock types based on their characteristics, and students will report in their findings.
